The release of 'Zack Snyder's Justice League' on these shores seemed uncertain for a time. There was no word of its release in Ireland, though it was going to HBO Max in the US. Now we have the deets on when and where we can watch it.

Director Zack Snyder's reworking of the 2017 film 'Justice League' will be available on Sky Cinema and Now TV.

The broadcaster has exclusive rights to the film in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Austria.

It becomes available on the same date as the US - next Thursday, March 18th.

The movie is said to be four hours in length. Jared Leto will be reprising his 'Suicide Squad' role of Joker in the new cut.

The plot synopsis, per the Sky announcement, reads: "In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions.

"The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes.

"Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions."

We'll have a review on site for the movie ahead of its release.
